    Hi

    I hope someone can help me :-(

    I’ve created a new landing page (called header-landing), using exactly the same code as the default landing page that came with the theme (magazine-landing), except that I have left the header in place on the new landing page.

    However, even though I have used the exact same code, I am left with an empty sidebar.  How to I remove this?

    Thank you so much for your help

    Hi,
    It looks like there’s a sidebar there, but actually there isn’t one, it’s because your CSS for the landing page content is narrow, just 650px wide. The regular full-width content is 910px wide… you could set it to that, but to me, the “You’re Almost…” heading going all the way across looks a little weird.

    If you like it that way, you could comment out the following line in your CSS, and it will fill the page right up:

    [css]
    .full-width-content.header-landing #content {
    width: 650px;
    }
    [/css]

    Hi David

    Thank you for that – but I want to reduce the size of the landing page wrap, instead of increasing the width of the content.  I thought I set it to 700px using this code, which I just copied from the original landing page.

    .header-landing #content-sidebar-wrap {
    width: 700px;
    }

    The weird thing is that in the mobile responsive version, there is no blank sidebar?  So could it be caused by something else?

    Thank you for your help

    Hi David

    I have created a test page with the standard landing page from the magazine theme – this is the width I want to achieve.  So I copied the code of this landing page, but somewhere along the line an empty sidebar is not removed (or added), and I cannot find where that is happening.

    Sample from theme: http://momgoesonline.com/test-landing-template/

    Hi,
    Right, you agree with me that it was too wide. :-) You were very close on the 2nd one. Try this, and if it works, compare it to the HTML, and you’ll see why.

    [css]
    .header-landing #inner .wrap {
    width: 700px;
    }
    [/css]

    I didn’t see your other pages, so you’ll want to check them, and make sure they’re still cool. Sometimes a CSS command will work “everywhere” until you make it specific enough.

    I too am having the same issue. No matter what I do. I have read through the old forum over the last 3 days but, I am still stuck or missing something. I just would like my title and content centered on a full page landing page. (agentpress2)

    Would somebody please enlighten me?

    Thank you,

    I am having the same issue. I am using Agentpress2 and the landing page template included is giving me nightmares. I have read through hundreds of old forums postings and I still cannot seem to get my title and content to display correctly. I must be missing something. There appears to be an active sidebar on my landing page. I am trying to display my landing page as a full width page and to have the title and content centered on that page.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you & enjoy your day,
